Griffin wants first team action

Darrell Griffin says he does not want to return to Leeds and not feature in the squad, as was the case before his loan move to Salford.

Griffin, 31, found himself frozen out at the start of the Super League season, and has played three games for the City Reds.

His current deal runs out following Friday’s home clash against Warrington, and he admitted he doesn’t want to be a fringe player at Headingley.

He told the Yorkshire Evening Post: “My understanding is after next Friday night’s game for Salford that’s my four matches done, then I suppose it’ll be a conversation between Salford’s chief executive and Gary (Hetherington).

“But I am not prepared to go back to Leeds and be in the same situation again where I can’t get anywhere near the squad.

“I would rather be here (at Salford), even if it’s a week-by-week thing, depending on what Leeds want to do.

“But I am not going to go and sit in the stand, I have got a bit too much to offer at the moment.”

Griffin made 32 appearances for the Rhinos last season, picking up a Super League Grand Final winners ring.

He has made more than 250 first team appearances in his career, which has taken in long stints at both Wakefield and Huddersfield.
